REVIVAL (See last page)
Hi all. Have been lurking for a little while to get the feel of the place. The standard of some of the work on here is awe inspiring..... so duly inspired here's my sketchbook.
I'll be updating regularly (yes they all say that!) and I'm in this for the long haul, so don't expect fireworks in 5 minutes.
I'd love to receive constructive/specific crits. I plan to work through the CA academy assignments (as well as other random stuff as uni work allows), so I'll try and link to them where appropriate, as suggested on the Academy discussion.
I'll start with some horses:
This is from my photo of a statue in Paris. I plan to do it justice one day (hmmm wistful...). I was intriuged by the
view point. There's something about statues, I think it goes something like; if the horse has only 2 legs on the ground then the rider died in the battle commemorated by the statue, 3 legs and they died of their wounds, all 4 legs and they died in a later battle or of natural causes. Then again that might be rubbish. Anyone?
This is from wherever this stuff comes from in your head:
Net ref. from image of statue. One day I'll draw this and you will (!) be able to tell whether its real or bronze.
Link to academy first assignment (hopefully)
